September 13
Day 2 | Details and Implementation of High Performance Buildings
Speaker: Dr. John Straube, University of Waterloo/RDH Building Science

How do designers achieve higher levels of insulation, reduced thermal bridging, and better airtightness? What are high-performance windows, and how are they selected and installed? What are the requirements for air tightness? How do you select proper air and vapor barriers? How do you select suitable HVAC systems for high-performance projects?

Day 2 will also cover Passive House insulation as well as issues around cladding attachment, balconies, and parapets.

In order to receive credits for this seminar, attendees will be asked to sign in at the beginning and end of the day.
